Morning Sickness back for week 14

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

OK I need to vent. I was overjoyed when my morning sickness lessened in week 12 and then completely disappeared mid week 13... I thought all of a sudden I might be able to live a normalish life again. And now it's back and I'm just beyond angry.

SOOOO SORRY!!!  i know it's not the same, but i made it through the first trimester w/out a day, and now have had it 3 afternoons in a row.  some sort of hormone rush.  i'm hoping it fades SOON!  cause it's not cool!  and for you too!

Oh no you poor thing. My morning sickness disappeared for a few days with DS2 at about 8 wks then came back. It SUCKED. But I was earlier along and it made sense. I also hope it's just a hormonal surge and you'll feel better soon.

I had that happen at week 12... it lasted for almost a week and then I felt better again!  Hope you feel better soon!!

Mine went away for week 13-15 and now its back (16 weeks today, its been back for a few days) with 1st 2 kids 14 weeks was the worst .. I really think that when i think its 'gone' its really just that it is so much better that i thought it was gone, then once i get use to the new normal, it seems worse again.. i remember realizing right after my 1st was born that i suddenly felt SO much better, i didn't even know that i still felt sick at the very end until i suddenly didn't feel sick anymore (literally right away, i was still in the delivery room)

Mine is back too and it sucks! Actually, I don't think that mine never really went away 100%. I've never had more than a few days break from it. In the first trimester, it seemed to be very erratic and unpredictable. Now I can somewhat control it as long as I pay attention to my body. Here are some things that really seem to make a big difference for me:

1) Never go too long without eating something. An empty stomach makes it worse

2) Make sure you are drinking enough fluids. Whenever I go too long without drinking, it's worse

3) Avoid strong odors or prolonged exposure to any odor

4) Take Vitamin B6 at every day. I take 25 mg 2x/day or 50mg 1x/day at bedtime if I forget the morning dose. As soon as I stop taking it, the nausea comes back.

 

It is disappointing and frustrating. I figured by this time (16+ weeks), I'd be feeling no MS and full of energy - that is definitely not the case. Just keep telling yourself that its temporary and it will all be worth it in the end! heartbeat.gif

Thanks! I will try all this advice! It's good to know these surges happen and then go away again. Fingers crossed.

 

Just another thought, does anyone see a correlation between air temperature and morning sickness? My friend in France told me that women who are in early pregnancy in the summer have way more morning sickness that women who are in the 1st trimester in the winter. I went up into Thailand this past weekend and it was really nice and cool out the whole time and I felt complete relief. It made me think there's something to this temperature thing.

HEAT totally makes a difference.  the last few days i got a fan blowing full on me and just chilled out and have been fine in the late afternoon, which was when it was coming on.  and usually it was after physical exertion in the heat as well....

 

so my wave has passed- hope yours does too!  

also make some snacks to keep on hand.

 

off to make some soup-n-salad for lunch.  i love bistro style meals!

15w 3d and while the "all day sickness" is relenting a little, this is by far the longest I've been sick in a pregnancy.  Hugs to all the sick mamas.  I can't swallow anything, so have been taking no supplements,  but I need to find a way to get some B6 to try it.

 

I was also going get some gummy vitamins to see if I can handle those...I need something nutritious.

 

Ugh.

Morning sickness tied to higher child IQ?   I read an article about a small study from Canada that showed a correlation between MS and higher IQs in babies. Here is a link to the Reuters.com article. Maybe there is some benefit to the baby after all. heartbeat.gif

I think heat, humidity and PSI are all factors for me. Unfortunately the heat & humidity is the same 365 days of the year but the PSI does go up and down. It's at 53 today with heavy smog from the fires in Sumatra and Borneo and will get worse as farm land gets cleared into the autumn.
